Beautiful 19th Century Cuckoo Clock

P1000814This cuckoo clock, circa 1850, has some unique features not found on later cuckoos. There are two cuckoos; the one on the left cuckoos once on the 1/4 hr., twice on the 1/2 hr., three times on the 3/4 hr., and 4 times at the top of the hour. The cuckoo on the right cuckoos the number of hours. The case and figures on the clock are all hand carved and in exceptional condition considering that the clock is 170 yrs. old. I was quite a job to repair it but now everything works. The only drawback is that it is a 30 hr. clock rather than an 8 day clock, so the weights have to be raised every day.
